Aller Anfang ist ... gar nicht so schwer (auf Englisch)

Getting started ... isn´t that difficult. Works Constitution Act: Introduction (WC 1)

The Works Constitution Act is one of the most important bases for the works council. It contains the works council's duties and rights. The Works Constitution Act not only enhances democracy in the establishment but is also a protection for the employees. Being familiar with the legal requirements and knowing how to deal with them is one of the preconditions to be able to represent and promote the interests of the staff.

Furthermore, the works council members have to solve diverse issues every day that cannot be handled with the code of law only.

The training course will provide you with necessary knowledge about the Works Constitution Act, about the decision making process and about the responsibility to enable the individual works council members to work for the individual employees in the best possible way.
